Things which* annoy me.

Postby DeePeeNCAFC » March 19th, 2019, 11:42 pm

In no particular order -

Drivers doing 60mph in the middle lane of a motorway with no traffic around them and no chance of overtaking another vehicle. This is, after all, an OVERTAKING lane, to be used only for that reason.

People who continually use the word 'that' in a sentence. Serves no purpose and explains *. Try omitting the word 'that' from your sentence and it almost always reads the same. Useless word.

People who use 'of' rather than 'have'. eg They should OF played Sheehan. Grrrrr.

Lazy refuge collectors. So, my pink bin bag has blown slightly onto my driveway overnight. You don't collect it. My binbag remains uncollected for another week. Grow a pair please, and realise I put it out for a reason. Oh yes, please also remember (that) I'm paying your wages via another council tax hike.

Thanks, rant over but feel free to add your own anxieties.

A fairly recent one. People starting a response to a question with "So". That's gone straight to the top of the list for me. "Should of" is now down to second place. Third place goes to youth-speak putting "like" about five times in every sentence.

Here are mine, in no particular order:

* People who write "where" instead of "were".
* Players who get fouled to gain a penalty, being allowed to take the penalty themselves.
* Banks that will seemingly do almost anything not to have to serve you at a counter in person.
* Train announcements in Welsh.
* My watch not having the exact time according to BBC News.
* Football managers starting a sentence with the word "listen".
* Lists :grin:

The younger element in society who answer ever question they are asked with "So...."

and they same lot who insert a superfluous "even" into sentences eg. "Is that real" becomes "is that even real"

Staff in Wetherspoons who say "who's next?"
Customers in pubs who think it's their God given right to stand/sit on stools in front of a small bar so no-one else can get a look in.
Joggers who don't give a shlt if you move out the way for them.
People on buses that sit on the outside with their bags next to them by the window
The total bilge that is written in Sunday newspaper supplements
Gary Lineker
My false tooth
Friends suggestions on Facebook
The term "Guys"
My council tax bill
Thin egg shells
The term "Locally sourced"
Those daft flyers that tell you there is no "poo fairy"
The word "Only" on any shop price tag

I could go on :mrgreen:

People who say refuge collector instead of refuse collector.

Only joking

The constant use of the word “literally”
People parking in disabled or parent and child spaces when they shouldn’t
Youths walking around with their hand down their trousers
People who push in
People who lack manners

Some of these will be controversial, but I'm going to be honest;

1) Charity. Love the concept, hate the method.
2) Old people in supermarkets. Go home.
3) People who drive around roundabouts at 10mph.
4) People who spend their whole lives living ultra healthy, just so they can spend their last 10 years in a care home, crapping their pants and talking to a plantpot. Live a bit, the furthest possible end is rarely pretty.
5) People who value money more than humanity.

Dear Big Baz.... "Youths walking around with their hands down their trousers" this has me baffled.... Is it a regional affliction? Please explain

It may be a Newport thing but every other kid in town has their hand in their boxers when they walk around. Maybe there is a bad dose of the clap doing the rounds

Definitely not just a Newport thing Baz.
I work a lot in London and Birmingham and the ‘yoofs’ there are all having a little play whilst walking.
